Follow the journey of a kid through his “homicidal food reality” as he takes a walk to his local corner food store. The Food Fight team at SOS Juice, a solar-powered for-profit/non-profit hybrid, has combined music and film with a school curriculum to help teachers engage students in a conversation about our soil-depleting and oil-depleting factory farming and economic policies that are contributing to starvation abroad, and disease and obesity at home.

Ever checked the label on milk? Most of it has Palm Oil or one of many Palm ingredients, this is supposed to preserve the milk for shelf life. I buy local organic milk, it lasts much longer, I don't drink much milk and it lasts for weeks some times a more than a month. So much for that myth. Our food may not list food as GMO, but if you can't pronounce the words listed, do you really want to eat it?

This is a very good PSA, mostly because it does talk the talk and uses the music that will appeal to young people.

This will definitely resonate more with kids today than anything else I have seen yet. I don't drink milk, I drink almond or rice milk. But I agree that we need to start with the younger generations now and teach them these things while they are young enough to start developing healthy habits that will become ingrained because they will be at war for healthy food that is not GM. Great post J L. Thank you.

Processed food is frightening, if one can even call it food.

As Greta Von Stuppe said in Blazing Saddles, "Oh, it's twu, it's twu!" Did you notice there was absolutely no real food in the corner store? This is the problem the ladies of the Chicago inner city faced so they set up gardens using rail ties on unused land. They grew peppers and collard greens and other healthy foods. Of course with the state Chicago's in presently I'm not sure how they are faring.

Read The Label on your Food.

'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes'!, ha ha. Seriously, we should boycott the sleaziest national-chain fake-food merchants and teach our kids the same.

Noted, some things just do not belong in food! Make it organic, but watch that too, some say it and aren't. I say grow and produce your own if you can, if not, be careful what you buy.
